TOWIE Stars Sam And Billie Faiers To Hire Bodyguards After Nightclub Attack
The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers has said she and her sister Billie are hiring bodyguards after being attacked by a gang of girls.
The pair have been left terrified after the incident in a central London nightclub, which was filmed and posted online by an onlooker, and are now scared to leave their homes.
Sam, 20, told The Sun: "There is no way we will be going anywhere near where it happened. It's left us terrified of further repercussions. We're discussing security."
Billie, 21, added: "It's the only thing we can do to feel safe."
A spokesman for the TOWIE stars said: "It is being arranged. Whenever the girls feel it appropriate they will have security around them."
The locks have now been changed at their home after Billie's keys were stolen, along with her £1,500 Mulberry handbag, which contained cash and her mobile phone.
Sam said she received a call after the incident saying she'd get Billie's phone back if she went to a specified location. When she went to the spot, she said she was attacked.
Sam was admitted to hospital and underwent a brain scan before doctors gave her the all-clear. She suffered black eyes, a split nose, bruises and scratches on her back as she was reportedly kicked and punched unconscious.
Billie said she was surrounded by at least 10 girls on the dance floor at the Jet Black club, and suffered a split lip, cuts and bruises.
TOWIE stars Peri Sinclair, Joey Essex and Mark Wright have visited the girls with flowers and presents.

Kirk's got the rich dad, the swanky sports car and the club... no wonder he's attracting such classy ladies.
Popey possesses possibly the poutiest of all pouts in the land of TOWIE and she's not afraid to use them.
TOWIE's token larger lady brings endless laughs. Not one to sweep things under the rug or avoid the awkward questions, Gemma once asked Greek twins Dino and Georgie if they look at each others penises.
Everyone wants a nan like nanny Pat and everyone wants a bit of her sausage plait.
"Shuuuuuurp!" Harry not only has one of the best catchphrases on the show, he's also on the same level as the girls when it comes to tans, bleached hair and posing.
Mark Wright and James Argent
Mark and Arg, Arg and Mark, The troublesome duo have one of the best bromances reality TV has ever seen - Mark even sat through Arg's colonic irrigation!
Mark's been branded just about every name going when it comes to his alleged philandering, but that hasn't stopped the TOWIE girls going near him. Anyone would think he's the only man in Essex.
Lydia gets credit for having the most tasteful dress sense on the show, think more Chanel and less Agent Provocateur. She's also a hero for putting up with Arg and Mark's bromance. Not one to shy away from a fight, she's pretty good at putting Arg in his place.
TOWIE girls glammed up
See, they <em>can</em> look demure. You've just got to give them a Bafta.
Sam Faiers and Amy Childs
Amy may have left the show for "bigger and better" things, but in our mind she'll always be a TOWIE girl.
Joey Essex and Sam Faiers
Joey Essex, you really can't get more Essex than him. He's also the closest thing to a male Barbie on television at the moment. Here's a rare picture of the "reem" ladies man wearing trousers and not short shorts. We think it's time he faced up to the fact that they're NEVER going to catch on.
It feels like we've seen Lauren cry more times than she's laughed on TOWIE (that will be the ex-boyfriend's fault of course), but here she is doing what she does best - looking pretty in a beautician's.
Jessica Wright and Maria Fowler
Mark's sister Jessica and bubbly Maria know how to party (when the cameras are around).
Plastic fantastic, Chloe's not ashamed to admit all the work she has had done to look <em>so</em> good. Her latest mission involves <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2011/10/25/towie-star-chloe-sims-bum-implants_n_1029986.html" target="_hplink">getting bum implants to improve her "flat screen" derrière. </a>
